Taylor's 200 Series Acoustic-Electric GuitarsTaylor has raised the bar in playability and the ability to capture and project the warmth and resonance of choice tonewoods. The 200 series features acoustic-electrics built with Sitka spruce tops, and layered rosewood, koa, or sapele back and sides. They are as mesmerizing to look at as they are to play and hear. The 214ce Deluxe is crafted in Taylor's most popular body shape -- the Grand Auditorium -- which delivers even and balanced tone from deep lows to crisp highs.
Sitka Spruce and Layered Indian Rosewood or Hawaiian Koa BodyTo provide each note with warm resonance and lingering sustain, the 214ce Deluxe boasts a Sitka spruce top your choice of a layered Indian rosewood or Hawaiian koa back and sides. Sitka spruce is a strong and resilient wood that ages well and holds up strongly to scratches and scuffs, and it brings a sharp crispiness to your playing. Layered rosewood maintains an even tone with balanced highs and lows, while Hawaiian koa, a tropical wood, keeps your tones bright and warm, and tends to mellow over time. These woods maintain their resonance and warmth throughout the years so you can be sure that you'll be playing this acoustic-electric for a long time.
Supremely Playable Sapele NeckWrap your hands around this guitar's comfortable sapele neck and you'll experience the incredible playability that Taylor's 200 series axes have to offer. A super-smooth ebony fingerboard is inviting to the touch, and each of this appendage's 20 frets harness a tight action that's tough to beat. The Venetian cutaway on your 214ce Deluxe's body gives you easy access to those higher frets when you want to kick things up a notch or two during solos and crispy licks. Taylors are known for their playability, and the 214ce Deluxe is certainly no exception!
